STEEL PRICES RISE:

The carbon steel market is poised to grow by 699.35 MT during 2020-2024 progressing at a CAGR of almost 8% during the forecast period." (Source: Business Wire)

This is what we are seeing all across the industry; day after day new emails from vendor's telling us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason. The cost of steel materials has been steadily increasing throughout 2020, and it unfortunately has not slowed into 2021. The reduced capacities of companies in this industry due to Covid-19 health and safety regulations continues to have an impact. As a result, we are forced to increase our list pricing for 2021 and add a steel surcharge to off-set the rising costs that is projected to continue this year. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have on our close and prospective customers. We we will do what we can to keep our prices low when the opportunities are found, but right now we are left with little options.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

Product overview

INS Traction Skid Steer Roadmaster Tire Studs 

Description

The Roadmaster Tire Studs for skid steer tires are ideal for icy conditions and winter traction. Finally a solution for your winter traction needs. Roadmaster Studs are designed specifically for heavy equipment. Many people have tried for years to use screws or ice racing studs on there skid steer loaders and CTL machines just to get some kind of temporary traction. The results have been mixed. The hardest thing to overcome is wear. Screws just are not hard enough to last any time at all and when they wear out, they are stuck in your tire. With no head on them, they will work their way into your tire and eventually pop it. Ice racing studs work for a while but have small carbide inserts that just do not last. Their cost is similar to in price, but the actual amount of carbide is much less. You may as well just buy a product that is made the way you need it.

Roadmaster Studs use a screw in design with a hex head that extends down past the carbide. As the carbide wears, you are still left with a head to remove and replace the studs when needed. This will be a very long time just because of the amount of wear that these studs are designed to take. Some Roadmaster Studs have achieved 600 hours and can still be removed and used again. Now that is value!

Insertion is easy using just a powered screw driver and the supplied tool. Removal is just as easy. You will find that you can get more than one season out of these studs as they are completely reusable. Standard length is 30mm. This gives you 1 inch of tread penetration. Make sure you have enough tread to accept a stud this long.

It is the customers responsibility to measure the correct depth or you may damage your tires.

We recommend using 30mm or 1" studs for skid steer or compact loader installations because of the amount of tearing action the machines can produce when turning. It is your responsibility to measure and order the correct length to insure they cannot pull out. It they are too short, they will pull out.

Correct Installation

  • Use a low torque driver at fairly slow speed
  • Screw the stud in until the washer (underside) makes contact with the rubber visually
  • Go no more that 1/2 turn past that point.

Basic Installation Rules

Never fit a stud that is too long for the tread depth, i.e. an 18 mm stud requires a 17 mm tread depth. 3 mm of the stud should be raised above the tire surface, which gives a margin of 2 mm down to the cord. The thickness of the cord varies between 4 and 20 mm depending on the tire type. 
To achieve optimal results, count the number of contact patches on the tire and make a strategy for fitting the studs. We are currently stocking only 30mm studs as they are the heaviest duty for this application. They have the largest carbide tip and will last longer than the smaller studs. It is up to you to verify that this length will work in your application.

Grip Star Studs are easily fitted and dismounted using a simple socket. No special tooling is required for Grip Stars.

Disclaimer

Studs are designed to add traction to your tires by adding a solid bite to your tires/tracks. This bite can easily break through snow and ice and scratch the base surface. In the case of a driveway, these scratches will leave marks. Care must be taken not to skid turn on important surfaces where you do not want to leave a mark. This means, if you do not want to scratch your clients driveway, you need to be careful or do not use studs. In most cases these marks are not permanent and will just was or wear away after a few rain storms. Please note that Skid Steer Solutions or our stud manufacturer do not assume any liability with how you use this product.
